The Hardy boys have signed on as stagehands for Legerdemania -- the annual extravaganza showcasing the world's master magicians. But this year's spectacular proves to be a killer. Gideon the Great's assistant, Miranda, was supposed to do a vanishing act. Instead she ends up dead...and the murderer disappears.
The competition onstage is fierce, and Frank and Joe soon discover that just about every magician has a motive for murder. And determined to avoid exposure, the real killer is more than willing to perform an encore. The Hardys will have to come up with some hocus-pocus of their own, or they might end up victims of the dirtiest, deadliest trick of all!
